The game is also fully licenesed with every player of every team rendered into the game.
There are many trophies to be won, here's a quick run down:
World Cup: Much the same as the Football variety, the best in the world fight to become world champions.
6 Nations: Only 6 nations are represented in this European tournament to play as: Scotland, England, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy.
Tri-Nations: Australia, New Zealand and South Africa play in this tournament.
Bledisloe Cup: It's Australia vs New Zealand, in a best of three tournament.
Calcutta Cup: Much like the above, except it's England and Scotland that fight it out.
